Endurance Crater Ingress

        This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 135 (June 10, 2004). This was taken during Opportunity's ingress into Endurance Crater. It is a vertical mosaic running outward from the front of the rover, down the slope of the crater wall. It was taken in 13 filters to look at differences in composition between layers of stratigraphy in the crater wall. Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in this mosaic.  Two versions are available below at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color stretch to enhance the subtle color differences in the scene.
